How would one go about acting "in-character" as a Pokemon? Normally, I don't worry about it too much, but I'm going to be on stage co-hosting a lot of events as a Pikachu, and I don't want to appear as "just another Pikachu cosplayer who wanted to cosplay something cute a popular", I'd like to be able to take this the extra mile, and the only way I can think to do that any more is by some how being in-character. (My current pictures of my Pikachu costume are not-up-to-date, btw.) Any thoughts?

hmmm, other than the trademark "pikachu" squeak, you could try learning Pikachu's language

in other words, try not to over use "Pikachu" by itself. You can also make it so that you can only speak in Piakchu, leaving the host to translae what your saying to the audienc.

Ok, thats enough from me, its 4 in the morning and I don't think im thinking sraight :D

I have this problem with my Natu costume. How in the world do you act like a Natu? I try to look kind of smallish and cute, but... I'm clueless. I really am.

You Should get someone to dress up like Ash and go up there with you. Like big appleton said, you could learn pikachu language and have ash translate. That would be cool.

@Darksilverhawk
go with the genreal public view on Natu. For example, I see Natu as a pokemon similiar to Pidgey, pecking anything it sees or anyone. Plus its a pokemon who stares into the future, so start praicing really long stares :D

Try also doing some background research as well:

Behavior
"Due to its prophetic abilities, it's a very cautious Pokémon that's easily spooked. It has the quirky behavior of staring at something until the thing moves"

:D

I thought about learning Pika-speak, but I think that would annoy my co-host more than it would entertain the audience =/ Unfortunately, I have to actually speak. Otherwise a good idea =]

That's actually a great suggestion. =D I just looked up stuff on Pikachu. It talks about Pikachu in the wild foraging for berries. I now intend to make a large strawberry (not too large, mind you o.o) and pose with it. People who don't know Pokemon well won't care, but people who do will realize that I didn't want to just cosplay something cute and popular, and that I actually really like Pikachu and did my research. Yay~!

(Also, Ash's Pikachu likes ketchup. I LOVE ketchup! <3)

It says here that Pidgeot enjoys flapping/extending it's wings to intimidate enemies and create windstorm >.>

well, I reccomed you do just that, flapping your wings around that is. Also since its the final evolution of a Pidgey, go aroundacting like ne as well, that is pecking everything you see :D

Hope this helps :D
